The applications of stem cell research for child care

 

Stem cells are special body cells whose function is not yet defined for the organism. They, therefore, have the ability to develop in principle to all cell types, for example to blood, heart, nerve or liver cells; they are multi-purpose. Stem cells, therefore, play an important role in regenerative medicine. But did you know that umbilical cord blood can actually have potential uses in child care?

Everything parents need to know about umbilical cord blood

Umbilical cord blood stem cells are young, vital and very divisive. They can transform into any other cell type, while other adult stem cells, such as bone marrow, are already specialized. In contrast to adult stem cells, they are also unencumbered by environmental influences and aging processes and free of pathogens.

Another advantage: they are immediately available when needed. The likelihood that the transferred stem cells from umbilical cord blood will grow in an organism is 10 times higher than that of stem cells from the bone marrow. In addition, they are optimally tolerated when autologous use as the body’s own stem cells, since the tissue characteristics, are completely identical. So there is no rejection reaction of the body. Even in non-own applications for a recipient with similar tissue characteristics (e.g. a sibling), there are significantly fewer rejection reactions because umbilical cord blood stem cells are still immature immunologically and therefore cause a less strong immune response.

In many serious diseases (e.g. cancer or autoimmune diseases) today stem cells are successfully used. The storage of umbilical cord blood ensures that your child has all treatment options in case of illness. Plus, the advances in medicine are huge, so your child has the best chance of benefiting from future development.

Stem cells from the umbilical cord blood may provide the best health care for your child

If you ask expectant parents which gender you would prefer with your offspring, you often hear the phrase “No matter – the main thing is healthy!” Stem cells from the umbilical cord blood can help to keep it that way.

If you ask expectant parents which gender you would prefer with your offspring, you often hear the phrase “No matter – the main thing is healthy!” Stem cells from the umbilical cord blood can help to keep it that way.

Immediately after ablation, the blood is drawn from the part of the umbilical cord still attached to the placenta (but not to your baby). This process takes about 2 minutes and is similar to the normal blood draw from a vein. Neither the newborn child nor the mother can feel any of this procedure. Other types of stem cell sampling, such as peripheral blood stem cell donation or classic bone marrow donation, are associated with much more risk, effort, and pain for the donor. Find out everything about the easy flow of umbilical cord blood collection with your nearest cord blood banking facility.

It has already been demonstrated that stem cells have the ability to develop into blood, nerve, liver, blood vessel, muscle, heart muscle, bone, cartilage, skin and islet cells. They have also been making an important contribution to the treatment of cancer for years (own and third-party use).

They have also been making an important contribution to the treatment of cancer for years (own and third-party use). Sibling children can be ideal donors for the allergenic use of stem cells.

Stem cells can thus provide useful services even in later years – provided that they are tested, processed and stored by experts according to the highest quality standards. If you want to give your child this unique gift, you should contact us in time before birth. We organize the entire process.

As, you can see there are a ton of potential medical benefits to using umbilical cord blood and storing it for later use.
